Birds in a Vent


Birds in Vent Removal

Birds in vents is a major problem that occurs mostly in the spring and early summer in most of the country. This directly coincides with the mating season of the most problematic bird in the United States, the European Starling! European Starlings were first introduced in the United States in 1890 in New York city by a man named Eugene Schieffelin. He was the president of the American Acclamation Society. In an attempt to have every bird mentioned in the writings of William Shakespeare in the United States. 

Little did he know that he was releasing one of the most destructive birds ever to hit the US soil, doing an estimated 40 billion dollars a year in damage to personal property and industrial equipment. Thanks to the efforts of this one guy, we have a very invasive species that will never be eradicated. Birds will get into soffits, attics and other man-made structures for the sole purpose of finding a sufficient, safe, nesting area in which it can reproduce and hatch its offspring. This is the only reason you will ever have one in the vent of your home. 

Determining the presence of babies can be difficult as your ability to see and hear will be reduced by nesting material. Special tools and equipment are often required to access the nest and any babies inside. A family of starlings can easily damage and break through plastic vent tubes allowing them access into your attic or walls and complicating matters considerably. 

Feather Free Zone employs hands-on techniques to humanely remove the nest and the babies inside. Once the babies have been retrieved, they are placed inside a protective container with some of the nesting material we have collected from the vent. Our technicians then secure that container to the exterior of your home nearest the opening. This allows the starling parents to easily locate their babies and continue to feed them until they are ready to fly on their own.

Bird Proofing

To prevent future re-entry, our technicians secure the vent cover with a heavy gauge screening that keeps birds out but also allows the vent to function as it should. Dealing with bird removal can be messy. If there is an accumulation of bird droppings in the attic, chimney or outbuilding, it’s best to call a professional who has the equipment necessary for safely removing bird droppings. Bird Exclusion, Bird Proofing Bird exclusion prevents birds from getting to specific bird landing, roosting or nesting surfaces. Examples of bird exclusion include netting, spikes, vent & chimney guards, access control mesh, bird screens, and more. Feather Free Zone will help you decide on the best product you need.
